The Benefits of Dental Crowns

Posted by Jaji Dhaliwal on Jul 13 2023, 06:07 AM

Over time, teeth can weaken or break due to cracks and chips created by grinding teeth, biting into hard foods or objects, or even poor oral hygiene practices. A dental crown protects the rest of the tooth from further damage. A dental crown is a customized, tooth-shaped cap placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to restore its strength, shape, size, and appearance. At 4th and Morris Dentistry, crowns are commonly made from materials such as porcelain, ceramic, or metal alloys and are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. Once placed, the crown restores the tooth’s shape and appearance while protecting it from bacteria and other harmful elements that could cause further harm. The crown can also support weakened teeth that are beginning to fall out and fill gaps between missing teeth.

The Procedure for Dental Crowns

The first step is to prepare your tooth for the crown by removing the decay. Then, your dentist will shape it slightly so that the crown will fit over it properly. After it has been reshaped, impressions of your teeth will be taken so your custom crown can be created for you. Usually, it will take a couple of weeks to make your permanent crown, but your dentist may provide you with a temporary one to wear in the meantime. Once the crown is ready, they will place it over our tooth and cement it. Your dentist will make any necessary adjustments to ensure your bite is comfortable before fixing it permanently into place.

The Benefits of Getting a Dental Crown

Restoration of Function

Dental crowns restore damaged or decayed teeth' strength, functionality, and integrity. By providing a protective covering, crowns allow you to bite, chew, and speak easily and confidently.

Restored Functionality

Dental crowns are designed to restore the strength and functionality of damaged teeth. A crown provides a protective covering that allows you to bite, chew, and speak confidently, whether your tooth is cracked, severely decayed, or weakened due to previous dental treatments. With a crown in place, you can enjoy a full range of foods without discomfort or limitations.

Aesthetic Enhancement

Dental crowns are customized to match your natural teeth' color, shape, and size, ensuring a seamless and natural-looking smile. Whether your tooth is discolored, misshapen, or damaged, a crown can transform its appearance and enhance overall facial aesthetics. With a beautifully restored tooth, you'll regain the confidence to smile brightly.

Protection for Damaged Teeth

Dental crowns provide a protective barrier for damaged or weakened teeth. They effectively cover and encase the tooth, preventing further deterioration or fracture. By protecting the vulnerable underlying tooth structure, a crown can extend the tooth's lifespan and prevent the need for extraction.

Dental crowns offer many benefits, from restored functionality and enhanced aesthetics to increased protection and improved oral health.
